Tour Scotland Video Scottish Ambulance Service Junction Scott Street And South Street Perth Perthshire

Tour Scotland Monday morning video of a Scottish Ambulance Service vehicle moving fast across the junction of Scott Street and South Street on visit to Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. In 1948 the newly formed National Health Service contracted two voluntary organisations, the St Andrew's Ambulance Association and the British Red Cross, to jointly provide a national ambulance service for Scotland. The service was known as the St Andrew's and Red Cross Scottish Ambulance Service. The Red Cross withdrew from the service in 1967; the service was renamed the St Andrew's Scottish Ambulance Service. In 1974 the service was taken over by the NHS, the title being shortened to the Scottish Ambulance Service.
